CardsDirect Leads the Way for Greeting Cards to be Recycled; Holiday Cards Find a New Home

Share Article

The "CardsDirect 2007/2008 Card Recycling and Re-Use Program" was wildly successful for recycling cards and retrieving reusable cards to be given to organizations in need. As such CardsDirect is announcing an extension of the program as well as working to add more recycled card products to its assortment.

It was pleasure to receive the packages, sort through them and find reusable cards for the organizations that often call requesting them, and recycling the rest so that the resource can be renewed.

In December of 2007, CardsDirect, http://www.cardsdirect.com ,announced a revolutionary program for the paper greeting card industry - the "CardsDirect 2007/2008 Card Recycling and Re-Use Program". As a leader in the online customized card business, CardsDirect recognized a need to help in recycling cards and to aid in the reuse of Holiday Cards, Christmas Cards, and all other types of bulk cards. Beyond its broadest expectations, the company received such a significant response to the program that it has led to a longer term commitment to continuing the program for future years. The large number of packages that were sent in was evenly split between used Corporate Holiday Cards that required recycling and unused cards ranging from Thank You Cards, Get Well Cards, and Happy Birthday Cards to Bulk Christmas Cards and Holiday Cards that can be redistributed to organizations in need of cards for communications.

"CardsDirect remains committed to wisely managing the use of paper as it relates to greeting cards" said Kevin Strawbridge, VP of Marketing at CardsDirect. "It was pleasure to receive the packages, sort through them and find reusable cards for the organizations that often call requesting them, and recycling the rest so that the resource can be renewed."

To complete the loop on the paper recycling process, CardsDirect is exploring the ability to deliver a full line of Recycled Holiday Cards and recycled Christmas Cards for the 2008 season. By adding this product to its line, CardsDirect stands ready to create a healthy cycle of paper use - the recycling and reuse of already printed cards and using recycled paper for newly printed cards.
